Falooda

This is my favourite Indian summer drink. It gets its name from the cornflour vermicelli that floats in it. Many people replace it with tiny pieces of jelly made of 'China Grass'. But an easy substitute is 'cellophane' noodles (bean starch noodles) which are soaked and boiled until transparent and then cut into short length.

    I think where it says corn flour it should read corn starch.
